Stroke Home Care Services
Part-time and live-in home care facilitating at-home stroke recovery and independence.
Whether you’re coordinating your loved one’s stroke care from afar or managing the responsibilities hands on, in-home care services can be integral to the process. Senior Nannies matches your spouse, parent or other loved one recovering from a stroke with prescreened, reliable home care professionals with the training, experience and compassionate approach to help your loved one remain independent in a safe, familiar environment while recovering from a stroke.
First and foremost, our experienced home caregivers provide the companionship and encouragement that are vital for successful at-home stroke recovery; inactivity and loneliness can contribute to post-stroke depression and make it less likely that stroke survivors will follow their treatment/rehabilitation plan. Stroke home caregivers from Senior Nannies can be relied on to promote your loved one’s well-being and safety. And if you are the caregiver for a loved one recovering from stroke, a home care professional referred by Seniors Nannies can be your back-up, providing reassuring respite care that allows you time to look after yourself, too. More information about stroke can be found by visiting the National Stroke Association website.
Personal home care services that caregivers referred by Senior Nannies commonly provide for individuals recovering from stroke include:
- • Personal care assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as hygiene, bathing and grooming; dressing;
transferring, positioning, and mobility/walking; using the toilet/incontinence; eating
- • Personal care assistance with instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) such as meal planning, cooking, light housekeeping, laundry, pet and plant care, transportation, errands, shopping, doctor and other appointments
- • Companionship – encouragement, interpersonal cognitive stimulation, facilitation of physical activity, and
intervention for loneliness and depression

If medically necessary skilled nursing care for a loved one recovering from a stroke is required, Senior Nannies also refers skilled licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered nurses (RNs) who have experience with the special needs of individuals affected by stroke to provide appropriate in-home health care.

The best part-time and live-in home care for stroke requires compassion and experience.
Our prescreened, qualified stroke home caregivers are experienced with the day-to-day needs of stroke survivors at every stage of their rehabilitation and recovery. Adjusting to everyday life as a stroke survivor is physically and emotionally challenging. Depression, anger, frustration, and other strong emotions are understandable. Compassionate and patient home care that preserves your loved one’s dignity and safety allows him or her to focus on adjusting and improving. Stroke home care services can be provided on a part-time basis (typically 4 to 6 hours a day), in shifts, overnight, and on a full-time, live-in basis.
